  1. Stronger monsters is a fun challenge. I did that on both the PS4 and Switch versions. It gives you the incentive to use more spells and abilities from the party so you get the most out of everything they can do. Characters like Rab can be very nice in Stronger Enemies since his spell list is the most diverse of the playable mages IMO.
  2. Heavy Burger: Finished off the last few hard challenges and surprisingly beat the last one, sarcastically called Easiest, in one go. The bonus content you unlock from clearing the challenges was nice, but really the thrill of actually beating said challenges was the most exciting thing. Still the best $2 I’ve spent on the eshop. Doom Classic: Finished off Episode 1 last night...and was immediately bombarded by enemies and killed in seconds. Apparently that’s supposed to happen because I did get an ending message before the credits kicked in. So now, I’m up to Episode 2, seemingly now in H
  3. Huh...I wonder if I found that secret door. Might have to boot the game up and check around Helidor.
  4. Nintendo published DQ11S and Builders 2 on Switch. The games they publish don’t really go down in price unless they do REALLY bad, like Codename STEAM on the 3DS.
  5. Took today off from work and managed to finish off each game 100% in the Spyro Reignited Trilogy on my Switch. My opinion on 3 has improved since the last time I played it, but I would still order them 2, 1, then 3 as my favorites. It was fun playing through the trilogy on my Switch, and being able to have it on the go whenever I get the kick to replay one of the games will be nice. It does look better on PS4, but I would still recommend the Switch version if you’re looking to play the original trilogy for the first time or if you’re a Spyro fan.
  6. Really wasn’t home and able to play RPGs much this weekend off from work, but yesterday evening I was able to get some progress in Octopath. Started up Tressa’s chapter 3 since it takes place in the same town as Olberic’s chapter 2, but man, her chapter 3 boss was actually kind of difficult. I think my team combination played a big part in that, but I managed to win on the second go. Glad we got to learn more about Captain Leon since he helped set Tressa out on her journey. Got started on Alfyn’s chapter 3 next, and man, I can’t believe how many cold hearted apothecaries are wandering ar
  7. Found an Inkling amiibo on sale at Best Buy. Apparently it was a leftover sale from Black Friday. So with the $8 bucks for that plus the $4 I spent on the eshop during Black Friday, I spent a whopping $12 on stuff for Black Friday. Good news is now I can have an Inkling fighter for Smash and I now have the Inkling outfit unlocked in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Now if only Rosalina and Wario amiibos would re-appear again do I can get the last outfits I need in MK8.
  8. Heavy Burger: Almost down with all the single player challenges; just two more of the Hard difficulty ones to go. I’ve really enjoyed the zaniness of this game, and it’s great to play on quick bursts. Not sure if I’ll get many chances to play this one with others in person, but I’m fine just messing around with the single player challenges and trying new combinations of settings for free for all matches. Doom (Original): This was the other $2 I bought from the Black Friday eshop sales, and I’ve actually been enjoying it! Not really a shooter game kind of guy (first person or third person)
  9. Yeah, he’s got such a cool voice. I don’t play Blazblue much, but I play as the lead character Ragna the Bloodedge just because he’s voiced by Patrick Seitz. He’s in several RPGs I like like Trails in the Sky, the Ys games as Adol’s best friend Dogi, several Fire Emblem games...he’s just so recognizable but in the right way! Haha He and Jamieson Price are two of my favorites VAs.
  10. Kind of works in my character’s case since Olberic is built up as this powerful war veteran. Him being so much stronger than everyone else kind of makes sense on a story level.
  11. I usually import art books (if they don’t get an English release) for the series I like. Did that with all the Etrian art books minus the 10th anniversary one since that’s linked to the collector’s edition of Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2. I don’t like it when big 200+ page art books are linked to a collector’s edition. It’s because of that I’ve missed out on getting some like the one that came out for DQ11 back when it released in 2018. I get why companies do it to try and push their special editions, but at least release the book by itself a few years later.
  12. I didn’t read anything up on the game before playing, so choosing a character came down my gut instinct. Usually my character choice is the big guy/heavy hitter character, so I went with Olberic. He’s 10 levels above everyone else but I’m fine with it. He hits like a truck, can tank no problem, and is voiced by Patrick Seitz aka one of my favorite voice actors. So it was a good choice for me. Haha If I hadn’t gone for Olberic, I probably would have picked Tressa.
  13. Nintendo collector editions seem to always have low prints and sell out immediately. If you can get one than cool, but I don’t think they’re worth trying to hunt down if you can’t find one normally.
  14. I kept waiting for it to go up on pre-order from BestBuy.com, but nothing ever popped up. But I don’t really need the collector’s edition, so no big loss. I’ll pay the $6 for digital. Fingers crossed I get an eshop gift card so i can use it towards that.
  15. @ealrecommended this game on the Vita episode of Side Quest. It’s called The House of Fata Morgana. Seems it’s coming to Switch (with a physical version courtesy of Limited Run Games) at some point, so that’s cool. I’m not a visual novel guy, but it sounded like an interesting read through. https://twitter.com/Novectacle_EN/status/1330551482836402176
  16. Octopath Traveler: Finished all the chapter 2 stories. Fitting that Olberic’s was the last one I did since he’s my protagonist. I’m surprised how drawn in I’ve become with this game again. Really enjoying seeing how world is portrayed and hearing new music from the awesome soundtrack. Also, found out yesterday that you can see party banter from all the party members if you swap them out at the Pub. That’s nice to know and that everyone has something to talk about with the current character chapter you’re working on. I remember seeing people complain how there’s no interaction between the cast,
  17. We’ve hit a new level of WTF the Pokémon. https://www.siliconera.com/pikachu-asmr-is-officially-now-a-thing/
  18. @Plattym3and @eal, your dreams are finally coming true. Persona 5 Strikers is coming out February 23rd next year. The announcement video was leaked to YouTube a short while ago but was removed. Seems it was announced a little too soon. It’s going to be on PS4, Switch and Steam over here in the west. Edit: Here you go, someone had the chance to get the video. We won’t be hearing from eal and Platty for awhile once this comes out. https://mobile.twitter.com/toomguy127/status/1334740571999653892
  19. We actually talked how non-childish Digimon can get in the Not Pokémon Games episode of Slime Time Side Quest. It’s because of that that I still remember the show and the different seasons so well years later. They weren’t afraid to tackle serious subjects, even in the dub.

  21. Wrapped up Alfyn’s Chapter 2 in Octopath. Freakin’ hell man, why is it that so many games I’ve played this year have a point that deals with a deadly virus that causes coughing and other symptoms?! Alfyn has to deal with a rival apothecary who is purposely causing it in the town. I figured when she was being secret secret hush hush about what her trick was for curing folks, something must be up, but to then sell a cure for what she essentially caused from her first cure...damn. She is stone cold cruel, especially with how she views human life in her pre-boss fight dialogue. I kind of forg
